614,722 Toyotas Recalled

Toyota is recalling 614,722 Siennas that have been on the road for 4 years to 10 years.

Does it seem like Toyota is 'pro-active'?

Not all Toyotas have problem....if you're one of the 'unlucky' who gets stuck with a problematic Toyota, Toyota is unresponsive. Where in the complaints posted on the NHTSA web site is there ANY indication of Toyota stepping forward to correct a problem?

PTC: Killing Another Forest! #5

...except....Toyota U.S.A. attorney, the King of Conflict, keeps insisting that he needs dates to depose the LEMON LADY's attorney!

Posted here: VACATION wasn't long enough!

Deep Pocketed Clients don't really care! Competence doesn't matter.

When Big Corporations whine, lament and cry that litigation is SO EXPENSIVE....they made it so!

The King of Conflict wakes up!

Prepares a court thingey to FORCE

the LEMON LADY's deposition discussed and agreed to!


A childish temper tantrum surely worth a few more BILLABLE HOURS!

Wouldn't you love to see that STATEMENT OF LEGAL FEES?

Mr. Toyota U.S.A. is careless with details and he's made other errors not commented on.....

Those 42 pages are surely taken from a previous case because Mr. Toyota U.S.A. did that with the INTERROGATORIES and his careless proof-reading skills left conspicuous errors. [Wonder what that cost TOYOTA U.S.A.]

PTC: Witness Protection #4

During the Pre-Trial Conference & Case Management, the Toyota U.S.A. Attorney....yet again.....asserted his WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM and his intent to file yet another COURT MOTION to PROTECT his DEEP POCKETED CLIENT.....[this after another endless delay attempting to schedule a telephone conference]....

TOYOTA U.S.A. will pay for another trip from Albany, NY to Plymouth and lose in court.  
NOTE TO TOYOTA: To save you money, your attorney has generously indicated that he'll sleep in his car. Since his fees have long since exceeded the cost of the BRAND NEW TOYOTA LEMON that's appreciated!  


Remember that only 13% of people file complaints, but the recent complaints about Route 44 Toyota are consistent with the comments on facebook:

This is the comment posted on dealerrater:

Half of the positive remarks on here are from employees trying to boost their egos.

Review the positive comments and judge for yourself!

These are recent negative comments:

My Review Of Route 44 Toyota:
I went to purchase a new car and Sean told me their "best" offer. I returned later in the afternoon with my wife and 1 week old daughter. At the time, Sean was with another customer and took them on a test drive of the exact car that I had returned to purchase. We spoke with one of the sales managers and said we could not afford their "best" price. They came down another $1,000 and w said that we were still too far away and since they couldn't work on a better price we shook hands and decided to leave. We contacted another Toyota dealership immediately after and got the exact same car for less than the price that we offered, without negotiation. That same night, Sean texted me a very unprofessional message at 8:17PM and insulted me for wasting his time, not buying their car and also called me a liar. We will never return to Route 44 Toyota and will ensure our friends and family do the same.

Another Route 44 Toyota Customer!

Good for you! My husband stood out infront of Rt 44 toyota with this sign and they threatened him that they were going to call the cops and they told him they would help out and work something out 3 hours later they basically wanted us to buy a new car from them (NO HELP) They couldnt even tell me what was wrong with my car it was almost paid off just over the mileage and they were saying that they had to replace all the wiring would cost 5K just for the parts not even including labor and that might not fix the problem!

Ariane Carbone-Himmel I think it had around 55,000 miles on it! Shouldn't have that kind of problem with that amount but since it was past the years it wasnt under warranty. And as my husband was leaving the owner told him dont try and come in here and hurt my business.

PTC: Changing Behavior! #2

To avoid the LEMON LADY in front of the Plymouth Court House [at the Pre-Trial Conference Sept. 17].....

The Three Stooges Attorneys were forced to arrive early!

Sshhhh! They're been reading my blog and know how disrespectful their tardiness is!

What they missed was the very nice head of security threatening to have the LEMON LADY arrested.

If the LEMON LADY could photoshop, you'd see an image of a LEMON being arrested.....

the best you can do otherwise is use your imagination.....

Can you think of better ADVERTISING?

Toyota PTC: Pre-Trial Conference & 'Case Management'

Today, September 17, 2013, was the PTC [Pre-Trial Conference] for which the Dilly, Dally, Delay, Stall & Bill 'em Law Firms were fully unprepared because of CONFLICTS, DELAYS, STALL TACTICS, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

Some of it was pretty funny!

Stay tuned!

CROSS POSTED: Toyota PTC: Pre-Trial Conference & 'Case Management'

More Than A LEMON......

A lawsuit was filed + 1 year ago for my BRAND NEW LEMON TOYOTA.

Civil Action #1259CV871

Plymouth Court

This isn't solely about my BRAND NEW TOYOTA LEMON!

This is about forewarning others about what I consider a SCAM!

I've tried to KEEP THIS SIMPLE!

There's far more to ROUTE 44 TOYOTA that's not included since this has gone on endlessly.

[If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a private email - comments are 'moderated' and will not be made public.]


During my annual CREDIT REPORT REVIEW, I discovered ROUTE 44 TOYOTA had ILLEGALLY accessed my CREDIT REPORT twice - on the day I fully paid for the BRAND NEW LEMON TOYOTA, and then ~ 6 months later when they discovered MY LEMON TOYOTA on their property with no license plates [because I had turned them in].

In addition, on that day, they also ILLEGALLY accessed the credit report of a friend whose name is NOT connected to the vehicle.
[Someone else has complained about this practice: The Arrogance of Route 44 Toyota]

When I attempted to get the INQUIRIES removed, their attorney offered gibberish:
I am not at liberty to discuss with you in detail why those claims are both false.
The legally permissible uses established by CONGRESS are here, clearly enumerated:


ROUTE 44 TOYOTA violated FCRA [Fair Credit Reporting Act].

When they refused to remove the ILLEGAL CREDIT INQUIRIES, I posted my experience here on dealerrater to allow them to rectify their ILLEGAL BUSINESS PRACTICE:
Reviews will automatically post after the two week reconciliation period has ended. 

ROUTE 44 TOYOTA could have very simply removed the ILLEGAL CREDIT INQUIRIES and offered an excuse:
' employee....unaware of company longer with the company....blah, blah, blah.'
Instead, I was threatened with a SLAPP suit [Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation], intended to BULLY and INTIMIDATE!  The tool of the ARROGANT and COWARDS!
Route 44 Toyota: Sit in the corner and be a good girl!


When a lawsuit is initiated, ALL COMMUNICATIONS need to CEASE!

With ROUTE 44 TOYOTA, it needed to be protested REPEATEDLY!

They're like LEECHES and you can't get rid of them!


Route 44 Toyota is like having LEECHES!

3.  ROUTE 44 TOYOTA employs an arrogant and bullying attorney that should have provided appropriate legal advice making ROUTE 44 TOYOTA aware that this business practice was ILLEGAL as well:

ROUTE 44 TOYOTA posts the photos of new TOYOTA owners in front of their vehicles, sends them a cheap calendar, and posts their photos WITHOUT DISCLOSURE!

As if that isn't bad enough, in some cases, ROUTE 44 TOYOTA also posts the NAMES of NEW TOYOTA OWNERS and includes the LICENSE PLATES.

This is an invitation to CAR THIEVES and STALKERS! in addition to being ILLEGAL!  

Whose BRAIN FART was that?



ROUTE 44 TOYOTA made arrangements for a 'loaner' from HERTZ, RAYNHAM....even though Enterprise is NEXT DOOR.

They subsequently FORGED my name on a RENTAL AGREEMENT.

Hertz, Raynham: Dilly, Dally, Delay & Billem

Hertz, Raynham: Dilly, Dally, Delay & Billem Part 2

The Dilly, Dally, Delay, Stall & Bill 'em KING!

Do you really want to do business with a business like ROUTE 44 TOYOTA?

Bear this in mind:

"A customer that has a good experience will typically tell 3 to 5 people, but a customer who has a poor experience will tell more than 20. When this is trend occurs via the web, these numbers can rapidly multiply and could spell disaster for brands that don’t have strategies in place to combat online negative chatter."


How many people know about the LEMON LADY?

Do you think it's only 20?

How many will it be when I began ADVERTISING?

Route 44 Toyota Advertising folks are so talented....

...maybe you can offer some suggestions.....

Since Route 44 Toyota, Toyota U.S.A. and Hertz along with their Dilly, Dally Delay, Stall & Bill 'Em law firms are reluctant to sever the relationship beyond their ENDLESS CONFLICTS, DELAYS, CANCELLATIONS .....

and .....

to justify BILLING their Deep Pocketed Clients.....

The LEMON LADY has had conversations with MARKETING and ADVERTISING specialists who have offered inexpensive suggestions, plans of action and options.....

Those suggestions have included CREATING A CATCHY LITTLE JINGLE for local audiences.

Readers in this forum have offered wonderful information through PRIVATE MESSAGES and you folks are so creative and inventive, maybe you could offer some ideas. [Comments are 'moderated' and will not be made public, unless permission is granted, as is true of the facebook page.]

Here are some COMMERCIAL JINGLES found:

Here's the saddest TOYOTA commercial.....pity TOYOTA refuses to correct problems....

CHAPTER 1: Blah, Blah, Blah.....

To make sense of recent events requires an unpleasant re-hash of the DEMANDS of the King of Conflict.....


Toyota's Albany Attorney, the one who is often confused about details and too lazy to look stuff up [remember that he kept referring to the LEMON LADY's Attorney as the one to be deposed?] ......

The King of Conflict apparently likes to travel from Albany NY to attend events in Massachusetts in his BMW....

because the Deep Pocketed Client is easily milked....

The King of Conflict recently proposed the......

in response from the LEMON LADY'S Attorney's request that Toyota produce AN EXPERT to be deposed.

The King of Conflict reminded the LEMON LADY's Attorney that today's telephone conference was in response to his

JULY 30, 2013 LETTER.

In that letter, the KING OF CONFLICT insisted if there was an objection, it MUST be received within 5 DAYS! [Which it was.]

Bullies are conspicuous with their DEMANDS.

The KING OF CONFLICT has forgotten that he's responsible for the DELAYS.

Today's telephone conference?

The KING OF CONFLICT agreed to ~ 20 MINUTES.....was it 45 MINUTES he blabbed SAYING little?

The LEMON LADY'S Attorney's telephone calls piled up, clients lining up in the hall.....

All very embarassing......

Let's not forget this is about  A BRAND NEW LEMON TOYOTA that had NO BRAKES!

So far, the Dilly, Dally, Delay, Stall & Bill 'Em Kings have spent more than the value of the BRAND NEW LEMON TOYOTA!

VACATION wasn't long enough!


Date: August 23, 2013

I am on vacation next week. Are you available 9-4 to discuss. I think 20 minutes is sufficient


Date: August 23, 2013

Also….do you have proposed dates for [INSERT LEMON LADY'S ATTORNEY NAME]’s deposition ?
When the King of Dilly, Dally, Delay, Stall & Bill 'Em can't separate the PLAINTIFF from ATTORNEY, poor boy! Maybe he does need a vacation!
Previously posted here:    Like Sands Through the Hour Glass......Part 2
Date: September 3, 2013, 9:03:11 AM EDT

When this week are you available to discuss the TMS deposition issues ?
Also, I again request proposed dates for the deposition of [INSERT LEMON LADY'S ATTORNEY NAME].

While the KING OF CONFLICT acknowledged reading this blog, it is clear that he failed to do so in the interim.
To pretend DEPOSITIONS possess a sudden urgency ignores the Dilly, Dally, Delay, Stall & Bill 'Em Tactics he has practiced.
Let's not forget that this is about a BRAND NEW TOYOTA LEMON!
Let's not forget that I endured Dilly, Dally Dan's TEMPER TANTRUM in court....
I endured the BULLY'S threat of a SLAPP SUIT [Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation] when I posted that ROUTE 44 TOYOTA ILLEGALLY requested credit reports.....
The lack of PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT by these CLOWNS makes a mockery of the legal system!
